    File Won't Save Or Delete

    I have a standalone file (no links) that I worked on last week. Today when I try to work on it I can open it and work on it. But when I try to save it I get this message -

    Save not completed. File rename failed. Retry?

    Select retry and nothing happens.

    I have a backup but when I click on the original and select delete I get this message -

    There has been a sharing violation. The source destination may be in use.

    My file is the source destination and nobody else (according to our systems department) has the file open.

    Baffled!

    Re: File Won't Save Or Delete

    Hi Guys, just to update you, finally I found a way to solve it
    Do you have error messages?, like :
    * Path too long
    * Error cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk
    * Cannot delete file: Access is denied
    * There has been a sharing violation.
    * Cannot delete file or folder The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name.
    For that I tried it with: http://longpathtool.com/
